Yes, I’m doing this reading to help promote the Guillermo del Toro, James Cameron, Universal Studios, 3D movie of, “At the Mountains of Madness.”
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting all twelve chapters of H. P. Lovecraft’s, “At the Mountains of Madness,” one chapter at a time, to stretch out the fun; and to give me time to clean each chapter up a bit (and correct the bloopers also) before they are posted here.
I’m also taking a little time between each posting to allow for any feedback, to see if there is an interest in my posting the entire reading.
Eight chapters (roughly 73%) down, with four more (roughly 27%) to go, one-at-a-time, until we reach The End.
And now, Chapter Eight:
NOTE: If you do a normal click on the MP3 file link in this post, WordPress will play it for you.
If you’d like to download and save the file for yourself, and you are using a PC, right-click, to bring up the right-click menu and use the “Save Link As” function to save the MP3 file to your hard drive.
If you’d like to download and save the file for yourself, and you are using a Mac, I believe that would be ctrl + Click to bring up the right click menu, and use the “Download Linked File” function to save the MP3 file to your hard drive. I don’t own a Mac so please correct me if I am wrong!
H P Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness Chapter 08 Read by William Hart
Please let me know if this reading is to your liking by way of comments.
And please tell me if you do want more of this tale sooner, rather than later.
Chapter Nine is coming soon, but I can’t predict the date. Hang on for more!
I just wish I had a sound-proofed studio; or far more control over the dogs, cats, people, cars, trucks, airplanes, helicopters, horns, music, auto-repair, telephone, radio, alarms, plumbing, television, coughing, and stomach noises than I do. That way I could make one smooth recording of each chapter, rather than multiple takes which have to have every bit of the background manually cleaned up; and that means hours of recording for each chapter, and more hours for editing. Oh well. I’m getting them out as fast as I can!

Keep up the good work, W.H. I remember from my own podcasting how much I hated post-production.
Thank You for the feedback!
And yes, post-production is a necessary pain; but the end results are what count!
I’m just trying to give back what I can to the entire Lovecraft community; one comma at a time!
I got pulled into other household projects this evening, so my Chapter 09 work will have to begin in the morning…
For some reason, my wife doesn’t believe “At the Mountains of Madness” is THE most important thing I need to worry about;
but hey, I can always shower tomorrow, can’t I? It’s not like our cats are complaining…
Keep up the good work I am really enjoying the mp3’s. It’s been a while since I read the Mountains of Madness so it’s alot of fun to hear the story once again. I downloaded the fungi from yuggoth recordings earlier and am looking forward to putting them on cd to listen to while going to work, at night muhhahaha should be interesting : )
